During 2015 and 2016 the U.S. Geological Survey and the U.S. Park Service acquired ~239 square miles of 2 and 8 points per meter Quality Level 1 & 2 LiDAR for Zion National Park in Utah. The .5 and 1 meter resolution bare earth DEMs ‘.img’ format have a 10.0cm vertical RMSE accuracy and are available for download. The LAS point clouds, classified to ground, low, medium, and high vegetation, are available from The National Map or by request from Rick Kelson from UGRC at RKelson@utah.gov. This elevation data was collected between November 2015 and July 2016 and has a UTM NAD83 (2011) zone 12 north meters NAVD88(GEOID12B) projection.
